hitting the vain isnt going tobe no fun at all. you have to find them. get them to where they wont roll or collapes on you. all the while putting the needle in the vain. may everytime you try you hit it right off. scott

The heifer was not dehydrated.
She was also not very happy with me learning on her to give a vein shot :lol:

Just a little advise...when learning to give a jugular shot, it is much eaiser to pratice on healthy cattle. Much eaiser to find and less likely to collapse. Feeders or fat steers are good guinea pigs! ;-)

=========sidney411":8odd64oq said:Update: The vet said she has pneumonia. Ya'll were right - I didn't realize that you wouldn't HEAR the crackling sounds when you listened to them breathe. He gave her Nuflor, Banamine, and an intra-nasal IBR - even though she has already had her shots he said the IBR will illicit an immune response and help her body kick the infection. He send me home with a shot of Nuflor and showed me how to give a shot in the vein so I will try another shot of Banamine also on Monday (tonight) Thanks all for the help!
